N2 - Given a set of solution and derivative values, we examine the problem of constructing a piecewise cubic interpolant which reflects the monotonicity present in the data. Drawing on the theory of Fritsch and Carlson (1980), we derive a simple algorithm that, if necessary, adds one or two extra knots between existing knots in order to preserve monotonicity. The new algorithm is completely local in nature and does not perturb the input data. We show that the algorithm is particularly suited to the case where the data arises from the discrete approximate solution of an ODE.
